In Memory of
Robert D. Adgate Jr.
August 1, 1946 - April 16, 2012

Obituary

Robert D Adgate Jr., 65, died peacefully in hospice care on April 16, 2012, after a brief but intense battle with lung cancer. He died surrounded by his loving family at the Hospice of the Comforter in Altamonte Springs FL. He is survived by his wife Sharon and father Robert D. Adgate Sr., with whom he shared a home in Merritt Island, FL; two sons Michael and Stephen of Marshall VA; daughter Chrys Pope of New Orleans, LA; sister Gloria A. Benns of Fort Pierce, FL; two daughters-in-law Tammy Adgate and Carla Adgate; and four granddaughters Josephine, Rebecca, Jennifer, and Carleigh; and several nephews and nieces. His mother Gloria B. Adgate passed away in 2004. He will be dearly remembered and profoundly missed by all who knew and loved him as a caring and kind man, who gave unselfishly of himself to his family and his friends. Bob spent the first half of his life in Bethesda MD, where he was an Eagle Scout. He was in the inaugural graduating class of Walt Whitman High School, where he was an All-Metropolitan running back for Whitman's first football team. He attended Montgomery College, after which he became a business entrepreneur. He also served in the D. C. National Guard from 1967-1972. His first marriage to Kathleen Montgomery, mother of his two sons, ended in 1982. Bob relocated to the Northern Virginia area in 1984, where he and Sharon started S&B Trucking and Supply Inc, followed by S&B RV Specialists. Son Mike worked in the family business for many years, and others in the family -- Tammy, Bob Sr., Steve and Chrys -- helped out as well. He and Sharon sold the business in 2005 and retired to Florida, settling first in Titusville and later moving to Merritt Island. On moving to Florida, Bob and Sharon convinced Bob Sr. to join them. Bob found many ways to enjoy life and to contribute to the lives of others. He was a devoted family man and was especially dedicated to helping young people develop into strong adults. When his sons were young, he coached them in baseball; and when his granddaughters began to play sports, he became an avid fan, cheering them on from the sidelines. Bob truly enjoyed his retired life in Florida, spending time boating and fishing and with many new friends. The family followed Bob's wish to be cremated and plans a Celebration of his Life, to be scheduled at a later date. Donations made to the Fauquier Falcon High School Booster Club, Attn: Softball and Soccer Programs at The Falcon Booster Club, Inc., P.O. Box 1166, Warrenton, VA 20188 would honor Bob as well as help his granddaughters.

Elisabeth Boese (Hairston)

December 19th, 1945 - May 2nd, 1973

Obituary

Elisabeth Boese Hairston, always called Lisa, was a brilliant student, a poet, and an artist, whose life ended much too early, at age 27.  From childhood, she had a passionate love for learning and a desire to do things her own way, critical of materialistic and conventional ways of thinking and living.  She always impressed her teachers and compiled an outstanding academic record.  After graduating from Whitman, she majored in English at Reed College, in Portland, Oregon, graduating in 1969.  In 1972, she earned a master’s degree in creative writing from Mills College, in Oakland, California, and entered a doctoral program at the University of California at Santa Cruz.  Married to George Hairston in 1970, she enjoyed a counter-culture life style in Oakland. Despite Lisa’s brilliance, creativity, and many achievements, and the love of many people, struggling with recovery from a breakdown, she ended her life on May 2, 1973.

Submitted by Lisa’s sisters, December 2014

Tribute

From Stephen Lemon on December 7th, 2014
Lisa was my date for the first ever Walt Whitman HS senior prom. Adolescent angst and hormones deeply imprint memories, and I will always remember that evening.
Lisa was a very special person with a heightened sensitivity that compelled her to feel everything a little too deeply. I never heard from her after we left Whitman for our various lives, but certainly Lisa did not have an easy time. The demons inside were clearly too strong for her gentle soul, and although she left life far too soon, the memory of that magical prom night will never die.
 
From Carolyn Reiss on December 19th, 2014
Lisa lived with my family the second half of Senior year, as her mother had moved out of the school district. I remember Lisa vividly on prom night also, as she was wearing a beautiful heirloom dress of my mother's that fit her to a "T". And she did indeed glow! Steve, you said it all very eloquently and touchingly. My whole family loved her and I still feel raw when I think about her. 

Carolyn Wool (Reiss)
 
From Jane Foster (Hill) on March 31st, 2015
Lisa was one of my closest friends in high school, and we remained close until her death.  We first became friends on the junior-year, spring-break, history trip to New England and Canada, led by Mr. Woofter, Mr. Treibley, and Mrs. von Doenhoff.  We had not known each other well before then, but somehow fortuitously decided to become “buddies” for that outing.  We soon discovered that both of us had a silly side:  Everything struck us as funny, and we giggled all the time, even when there was no particular impetus.  This made for great fun, but, as time went on, sometimes bemused and even annoyed some of our friends and family. 
 
I admired Lisa tremendously.  She was brilliant and a free spirit, and had a definite rebellious streak, which contrasted with my more reticent nature.  Far more sophisticated than I, she introduced me to art, avant-garde literature, and many new ways of thinking.  She was always able to delight me with her ideas for fun and adventurous outings.  We became known in our neighborhood for our summertime, evening, barefoot rambles, during which we dropped in unexpectedly on classmates and other friends.
 
Our fun continued during college breaks and vacations.  When her troubles started, I tried to help as much as I could.  Near the end, my husband and I saw her frequently and tried to bring some happiness into her life.  Her death was a devastating blow, which haunts me to this day.  Carolyn, in her comment above, said it well:  I feel “raw.”
 
Fortunately, in the years since her death, I have connected with her two sisters.  They have been a great comfort, and are like family to me.      
 
 
From Judy Roberts (Getrich) on March 31st, 2015
I remember being awed by Lisa's formidable intelligence and creativity. I didn't really get to know her until late in our high school years.  Then we had some fun adventures, most memorably the time a few of us rode bikes down the canal towpath to Georgetown.  We stashed our bikes at a gas station, ambled around for awhile, and then ate at a small country-style French restaurant on M Street, Chez Odette; we all felt quite cosmopolitan. When Lisa returned to the DC area in 1973, it was alarming to see her sinking deeper into depression and to realize that loving friendship was not strong enough to pull her back. I still mourn her untimely passing; it was and is such a great loss.

He was nice enough to take me to a bar with Flamenco dancing one evening. I never saw him after that and always wondered what happened to him.  It is clear he lived a full, and exceptional life.

Image Polly sat next to me in Mr. Virden's English class. As you know, she was beautiful and intelligent. But there was something else about her--a focus and  a peace--that I noticed even then. I didn't know she was ill until her desk sat empty. Only then did I know to admire this beautiful spirit who continued coming to class until close to the end, living her life fully until there was no more to live.

Elizabeth Cherry Doyle lost a long battle with breast cancer on Oct. 17, 2012. A long-time resident of Bethesda, Md., she had a home in Cabin John and a farm in rural Nelson County.

Known as Cherry, she retired in 2001 from her career of almost 30 years as production manager for the Smithsonian Magazine. Cherry then founded an art gallery and antique businesses, Objet d’Art in Cabin John, and sold antiques as Patina in the Charlottesville area.

Obituary

Artist and Administrator: Linda Giese, 67, passed away quietly at her Binghamton home on September 11, 2014. While growing up, she came to love ballet and was so avant garde in her sense of fashion, she had to make her own clothes to have the styles she wanted. Linda earned a Bachelor's Degree in fine arts from the University of Utah and a Master's Degree from Yale, becoming adept in theater costume and set design. She came to New York as costume designer for the Theatre Dept at SUNY-Binghamton, but soon joined Starry Night Puppet Theater, 1976 to 1983. Hired as administrative director and then managing director, one puppeteer remembers first seeing Linda creating stage pieces with "fabric and foam rubber all over the place." Founder Jan Hacha recalls, "Her graphics work for Starry Night was universally admired and instrumental in the company's growth. Her costumes and set designs were lauded nationally, especially for our production of The Griffin and the Minor Canon, which toured extensively in North America from 1980 through 1983. As a member of the Starry Night Puppet Theatre in 1982, she shared with all of the members of the company the top international award for puppetry that year, the UNIMA Award from the Union Internationale de la Marionette." During this period, Linda also designed posters and promotional pieces for the Cider Mill Playhouse. After the heady and sometimes chaotic world of performance art, Linda joined Broome County Legal Aid (now The Legal Aid Society of Mid-New York, Inc.). She served as administrator of Pro Bono projects, then worked alongside the executive director in writing grants and budgets. She was a steady and reliable presence there for 30 years until she retired. Linda never lost contact with the performing arts; not only attending plays and ballets, but volunteering with various theater groups in Binghamton. An active citizen, Linda campaigned against pollution and in favor of human rights, staying in steady contact with her state legislators. She served on the board of the Southern Tier Independence Center and served as board president. She was an active member of the Christian Science church. When not making a difference in the wider world, she was feeding and caring for the stray cats that came to her porch. Linda Giese will be remembered as being highly artistically talented, intellectually brilliant, sometimes head strong, sensible, and fiercely independent. She is survived by her brothers, Alan and Stephen and his wife Marti of Virginia and her sister, Elizabeth of Maine; as well as her aunt, Elizabeth of Virginia. The family is extremely grateful to the care aides, care coordinator, Medicaid coordinator, nurse, and doctor who looked after Linda with unwavering dedication and affection. - See more at: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/pressconnects/obituary.aspx?pid=172451367#sthash.59VR67OU.dpuf

Obituary

Ralene Kay (Johnson) Sliter, 68

Posted: Thursday, January 8, 2015 3:15 pm

For Ralene Kay (Johnson) Sliter “the music here on Earth stopped” Wednesday, Jan. 7, 2015, after a three-year private battle with stage-4 breast cancer.

Ralene was the third born of five “Rs” to the Laura Frieda (Schulte) and George Ellsworth Johnson family. The young family relocated often as George's career with IBM reflected the “I've Been Moved” philosophy to promote successful salesmen.

Ralene is survived by her mother, Laura Johnson Parker, of Rockville, Maryland; brother, Richard Johnson, of Santa Barbara, California; and brother, Randel Johnson, of Gaithersburg, Maryland.

Immediate surviving family members are husband, Thomas E. Sliter, of Kalispell; daughter, Andrea Goudge, and husband, Bill, of Scottsdale, Arizona; daughter, Laura Sorensen, husband Christian, grandson Beck and granddaughter Greta of Orange, California; son, Andrew Sliter, wife Deborah, granddaughter Abigail, and grandsons Fisher and Graham of Bigfork; and daughter, Linda A.J. Yearous, and husband, Ryan, of Missoula.

Ralene was preceded in death by her father, George Johnson; older brother, Roger Johnson; and younger sister, Rianne Willey.

Ralene graduated from Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, Indiana, in 1968. At Valpo, Ralene met her husband Tom and they were married (46 years) at the Church of the Cross in Rockville where her family were founding members. The young couple initially made their home in Valpo while Tom finished school and Ralene worked for the IBM Data Processing Division's Metals and Manufacturing branch office, in the Orders and Movements Department at Hammond, Indiana. Their first home was in was in Highland, Indiana. After working at IBM for a few years, Ralene raised her kids and was an active and vibrant community volunteer. After several moves to Hazelcrest, Illinois, then Homewood, Illinois, in 1979 the family moved to Kalispell, where they made their home on the “F” hill.  Ralene juggled shuttling youngsters to school, athletic practices, school functions and volunteering her spare time at numerous Flathead Valley organizations and charities, including Trinity Lutheran Church and School and Kalispell Regional Hospital.

Ralene loved life, in the Flathead and far away. As a youngster, Ralene loved the adventure of epic family road trips with her parents and four siblings across the country. As a high-schooler, Ralene toured the country witnessing with Walther League, a Lutheran youth organization. As an adult, travel for business and leisure took Ralene far and wide —  to Thailand, England, China, France, Italy, Germany, Austria and Hong Kong. Business trips were balanced by mixing in a play, symphony, concert or museum. Trips to Maryland to visit her mother, brothers and sister were filled with nostalgia, memories of walking the canal, visiting the government monuments and celebrating the next generation's wedding and birthdays.

Ralene was the glue that held family together. Ralene loved after-church excursions to Glacier Park. Ralene's favorites included picnicking at Apgar, hiking the Trail of the Cedars, cross country skiing, biking, touring on the jammer busses, stopping at Izaak Walton and boating. Ralene delighted in feeding ducks at Woodland Park, sharing coffee with close friends, sailing, boating and fishing up the Flathead River, planning birthday parties and weddings, cheering the Griz, and giving grandkids rides on her back until enough was enough. Ralene loved her morning bottomless cup of coffee at “McD’s” until the cup handle broke.  

Ralene dedicated her life to make her adopted hometown a better community for all. Ralene was an active member of the Flathead County Republican Women and chaired the organization's signature fundraising event, Chocolate Extravaganza, for many years. Ralene also was a past president of the BM chapter of PEO. Ralene's love of music inspired her involvement with the League of Glacier Orchestra and Chorale where she served as president.

Ralene served on the Foundation board for the Flathead Valley Community College for many years until her election to the board of trustees for FVCC, where she served until her death.

For those who would like to make a donation to honor the memory of Ralene, please consider the Ralene Sliter Student Success Endowed Scholarship; www.fvcc.edu/sliterscholarship.

A tradition at family events includes singing an old German song, “Hoch sollen Sie leben!” May you live well! Ralene put the song into practice in her life.  

There will be a viewing from 3 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 15, at Johnson-Gloschat Funeral Home. A service will be held at 2 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 16, at Trinity Lutheran Church. A celebration of life will be held on Friday evening, details to be announced.  

Johnson-Gloschat Funeral Home and Crematory is caring for Ralene's family. You are invited to go to www.jgfuneralhome.com to view Ralene's Tribute wall, offer condolences and share memories.

Ines Sanchez (Sanchez-Ferreira)

September 16th, 1946 - April 14th, 2009

"I have embarked on a journey to the other side of the distance, both as a human being and as an artist. My paintings, my sculptures, my writings are the steps of the staircase in which I travel this journey. In this journey, I am enthralled by the question: How much of my reality is my imagination? I build walls and limitations to convince myself of the solidity and security of life. These walls are solid, like the walls of a house, or ethereal, like the walls of a belief system. But life is full of small signs which show me that life is not solid and secure. Such times as these are when I have glimpses of my world and myself dissolving into infinity.
This infinity is space. Space, both in this planet and in the universe at large, is where the journey becomes most interesting and inter-real. Space is where my reality and imagination have an orgasmic dance and create a chiaroscuro scene where my carefully constructed world is diffused and unclear. Then, either, I create a new reality or I lose myself in the scene... either way, the journey must continue."

From Skip Fry on March 29th, 2015
Robin was a neighborhood buddy for all my school years:  Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, etc.  It was a rare summer day that we didn't ride bikes, play tag football, or hang out together along with Jimmy Constantine, Gordon McDonald, my brother Bill, and Gordon Meek.

After High school, we saw each other occasionally (along with his wife, Linda) but mostly lost contact when I sailed south after college.  I stayed in touch with his mother, Betty, for many years even as she moved in with Rob's sister, Kathy, in Denver. 

I sure wish Rob could be here now to enjoy the reunion of the Class of '64.  RIP.
